Early Dismissal

Early Dismissal Day (Classes end at 12:15 pm)

Final Exams

Final exams are given at the end of each semester. Since the exams typically require more time than a 50-minute class period allows, periods during finals are lengthened to 90 minutes and split over three days. Students are required to attend periods for which they have final exams, but they do not need to attend school during free periods.

Finals Day 1 (Periods 1, 2, & 3)

Finals Day 2 (Periods 5, 6, 7/8)

Finals Day 3 (7/8 & make-up)

No School

There are several reasons for there to be no classes on a weekday, including all-day teacher institutes, specified holidays, and designated non-attendance days. Classes may also be cancelled on short notice under the threat of severe weather (such as heavy snow or extreme cold) or some other community emergency.
